    An excellent historical mystery!

    Another enjoyable & intriguing historical fiction mystery by Alyssa Maxwell that features the "plucky" Emma Cross, a poor relation of the Vanderbilts. This time the story centers around two seemingly unrelated mysteries - the abandonment of a baby at Emma's home & a death during a sailing race organized by the Astors at Beechwood House. While Emma surreptitiously tries to find the baby's parents, she is also pulled into the investigation of the drowning death, especially after her former suitor Derrick Andrews comes under suspicion. Was the drowning an accident, a murder or something even more suspicious? I loved the underlying romantic tension between Derrick & Emma and Emma's continuing quest for independence as a journalist. The settings are stunning and the descriptions evocative of a bygone era. I can't wait to read the next book in the Gilded Newport Mysteries!

    Great Summer Read

    I really enjoy Historical Cozy Mysteries and this series if one of my favorites. The author does a very good job of mixing fiction and fact of the rich and famous summering in Newport, Rhode Island during the Gilded Age. This finds Em mixed up in another murder and family scandal as the summer season opens up. Since she is allowed to enter the hallowed halls of the mansions she can help the police solve the murders. I really enjoy the relationship between Em and Jesse. They both treat each other with respect and listen to each other. This series should be read in order but does not have to be. Previous mysteries are not spoiled in this book. Enjoy this book for a wonderful trip back in time.
